Here is just one of the many, many positions being advertised right now.

Senior Generalist Game Engineer, Alta VR

Background

After our recent successful launch on Oculus Quest, we’re looking to grow the team! We need a passionate Senior Generalist Game Engineer to help us optimize the game further, help us port more features from PC VR into the Quest and expand the game into the future!

Team/Company

Alta is a Sydney-based Virtual Reality start-up. Since 2016 we have worked on the multiplayer game A Township Tale and have grown from the 3 founding members to over a dozen passionate developers. At Alta, each team member wears multiple hats and is committed to our overall mission in developing a ground-breaking VR experience for players worldwide.

We are now fully remote and have several team members in different time zones. We are a very tight knit team and finding a great team fit is just as important to us and finding the right skillset.

The role

As a Senior Generalist Game Engineer, you will be evaluating our current systems, tools and pipelines to identify performance pain points, and then work with the team to improve on those. You will be reporting to senior members to make very high-level decisions on the future of the game and structure of development. You will also take the lead on porting features from our PCVR version to different platforms, where you will work directly with the different disciplines to make sure that the features are performant while still retaining their full design spec. For this you will need to be self-motivated to deep dive into how our current systems work and operate, at the same time you will need to be able to have an ongoing communication with the rest of the team, leveraging on their knowledge to achieve results quickly. Ideally you are someone that enjoys and understands the ways video games connect us and can put that knowledge to use in making meaningful changes to our product.

Requirements

Strong C# Knowledge

Capable to write Shaders in HLSL

Ability to translate ambiguous and complex design requirements into clear deliverables

You will get a competitive salary and a work environment where your actions can make a real impact.
